Niketown Honolulu presents its popular Niketown 5K run on Sunday, Oct. 1 at 7 a.m. in Waikiki. The event is open to the first 8,000 registered participants, and 100 percent of entry fees will be donated to Oahu schools for physical education, play and athletic programs.

“Active kids are happier, healthier and perform better in school,” says Keala Peters, marketing manager for Niketown Honolulu. “And this is one way that Niketown supports our schools to keep kids healthy and active.”

Participants can designate to which Oahu school they want their entry fee to go. They can also choose to run in the certified 5K (3.1 miles) course or the NikeGo 1 mile distance.

More than three decades ago, Nike started with a simple handshake between two “running geeks” (Bill Bowerman and Phil Knight) in Eugene, Ore., and today has become one of the world’s most competitive sports and fitness companies.

Its apparel, shoes and accessories are often sported by top athletes such as Tiger Woods, Michelle Wie and Michael Jordan. From the waffle outsole to Nike Air and Nike Shox, the company has always stayed on the competitive edge with innovative products and technology aimed to enhance an athlete’s performance. Featured here is a selection of the latest Nike gear available at Niketown Honolulu.

Entry fee for the Niketown 5K is $20 ($15 entry fee and $5 for T-shirt ). Register in person at Niketown Honolulu (2100 Kalakaua Ave.). For more information, call 943-6453 or visit http://www.niketown5k.com
